Description

Wild East productions presentation of rare Lucio Fulci 1966 western, "Massacre Time" that AIP completely redubbed and released it as "The Brute and the Beast" that even though it looks rather pedestrian and pseudo-western with a more modern look, it is always proving there is more going for it. The Fernando De Leo story and script is well-thought out and Fulci's direction is much more competent than usual, especially his later gore fests. In my opinion, this is one of the top ten spaghetti westerns I've seen and you can not really beat the cast which includes Franco Nero, George Hilton and Nino Castelnuovo. They are all unforgettable. Just wish it didn't look so staged, it's surreal. The DVD has both the U.S. and European cuts, both in English with some sound problems that Wild East says it tried to correct, but the U.S. version was made from the only 35mm print available. It also has an interview with the culprit, legendary director Lucio Fulci and an interview with star George Hilton, plus radio spots and trailers and featuring a picture gallery as special features. Wild East's edition is a limited edition. In Colorscope by Perfect.
